“Hidden on the edge one of Denver’s most colorful neighborhoods, the color purple is making a name for itself.
It’s the color of the front door at The Purple Door coffee shop, a place that does so much more sell than coffee and tea.
“The reason they call this place Purple Door Coffee is because back in the day purple … was for royalty,” said Jenna Williams, who has been working at the coffee shop for close to one year. “It had high value, and so whenever you walk through that door, anyone, they should know you have worth, you have value.”
But it’s the people behind the counter who are benefiting the most from finding their worth and value. The people taking orders and serving coffee were all homeless.”
